The proceedings of RCIS 2022 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing series. Papers shall be formatted according to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP conference proceedings template (for LaTeX and Word):

Papers that have already been accepted or are currently under review for other conferences or journals will not be considered for publication at RCIS 2022. Papers should be in English and must be associated to one of the following categories:

* Technical solution papers (max 16 pages Springer) present solutions that are novel or significantly improve existing approaches. A technical solution paper must include a preliminary validation of the proposed solution, and results must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to validate them in follow-up research.

* Evaluation papers (max 16 pages Springer) evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions through scientific means, i.e., by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, mathematical proofs, etc. The research method must be sound and appropriate.

* Industrial practice and experience papers (max 16 pages Springer) thoroughly present problems or challenges encountered in practice, elaborate on success or failure with existing approaches, or report on industrial practice (e.g., methods and tools). A paper in this category shall provide a clear context, detail the problem or the industrial practice, and explain the lessons learned.

Please note that the maximum length of the paper includes references, appendices, etc.

In addition to the main research track, RCIS 2022 invite submissions to the following tracks: Forum, Doctoral Consortium, Research Projects, Tutorials, and Workshops.

The submission site for all types of submissions is

By submitting a paper, the authors agree that at least one of them will register to the conference and present the paper. The appearance of a paper in the Springer proceedings is dependent on the registration of one author within the early registration deadline on March 25, 2022.

We adopt a single-blind review format, meaning that the author names are included in the paper itself under the paper title.
